Save event

you, me and my voice (YMMV) is a semi-autobiographical, accessible, funny, interactive, emotional (and a little dark), real-life piece of theatre, exploring speech, talking, listening, communicating, sharing, bonding... and what happens when these fundamental aspects of life become the biggest barrier to living. 

This tour combines a TED talk, live devising, storytelling interwoven with live music, projections, audience interaction and more. Experience a lecture like no other! No need for notepad, pen or even a lecture when improv music, colour and true friendship help us learn how to listen to those who find it hard to be hard. This original piece speaks louder than words, continuing to break barriers for those who struggle with words... well isn’t that most of us?
